Tin Can Alley is a non-technical trail that connects Mule Canyon to the Odessa / Doran Loop. As the trail cuts through a large valley, you will see a short canyon, miles of sandy road and gradual gravel assent and descent to the canyons ahead. During the mining era all of the trash, which was mostly comprised of tin cans, was dumped on this road. Clean up efforts over the years have removed the majority of the trash. When you first enter the trail from the east the remnants can still be seen on the left.
If you are driving north on Mule Canyon, the trailhead for Tin Can Alley is on your left hand side. There is a good sized rock at the intersection. Once you have made the turn, 50 yards ahead on the left, are remnants of the old tin can dump. Back in the mining days, locals would dump their trash in this short canyon.
